And I Am here To Help You,

Even From The Beginning, and In The Perfect Moment Of The
Way

The Real Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Is Always
Developed In The Context Of A Dynamic Struggle Between The
Urge To Be Complacent and The Urge Toward Perfectly
self-Transcending God-Realization.

The Way Of The Heart Is Founded On A Thoroughly
self-Transcending Approach To human, Spiritual,
Transcendental, and Divine Life and Practice. That Is To
Say, The Way Of The Heart Is Founded On Thorough
self-Observation, Most Fundamental self-Understanding, and
Effective self-Transcendence, Rather Than On Any
Propositions About How Either To Negate Or To Fulfill the
conditional self and its desires In the conditional
worlds.

In The Way Of The Heart, Growth and self-Transcendence
Require A Constant Confrontation With Two Dimensions Of
Reality.

First, There Must Be A Constant Confrontation With
Complacent Attitudes Toward present experience, Binding
Attachments To conventional or everyday living arrangements,
and Illusions About conditional Existence In General.

Second, There Must Be A Constant Confrontation With the
Real limit Of The Expressed Urge Toward Perfectly
self-Transcending God-Realization. That Is To Say, The
Present Urge Toward Perfectly self-Transcending
God-Realization Must Be Constantly Intensified and
Increased, If Actual self-Transcendence Is To Occur.

Therefore, The Way Of The Heart Involves A Constant
Confrontation With self-limits Relative To The conditional
Reality and The Unconditional Reality.

Since Ancient times, Mankind Has, In various times and
places, Tended To Embrace One or The Other Of Two
Characteristic Approaches To The Two Dimensions Of Reality.
Just So, every individual Tends To Be Involved In A Constant
Struggle Between Two Primary and Opposite Motives That
Correspond To The Same Two Characteristic Approaches To The
Two Dimensions Of Reality. These Two Approaches Generally
Correspond To The Oriental and The Occidental Strategies Of
Culture.

I Call These Two Efforts or Tendencies “The Alpha
Strategy” and “The Omega Strategy”.

The Alpha Strategy Is Based On The Tendency To Identify
With, The Most Prior Reality or Condition Exclusively. And
The Omega Strategy Is Based On The Tendency To Identify With
conditional Reality Exclusively.

The Alpha Strategy Exhibits Control Relative To
conditional Reality and Liberality Relative To The
Unconditional or Divine Reality.

Thus, The Alpha Preference Is For Control Of the
functional and relational activities of the conditional
psycho-physical personality, and Maximization Of attention,
Mystical Devotion, and Contemplative Submission To The
Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Condition,
Being, or Person.

This Alpha Preference Leads From self-Control To Peace Of
mind and, Finally, To Escape From conditional Reality and To
Consequent Oneness With The Unconditional Reality. Indeed,
This Alpha Strategy Can Be Said To Be The Epitome or
Archetype Of What Is Commonly Conceived To Be The Ultimate
Religious Path.

Just So, There Is Another and Quite Opposite Strategy
That Alpha Strategists Conceive To Be The Anti-Religious
Path, but Which Omega Strategists Conceive To Be Inevitable,
Truly human, and Even Obligatory From a Religious point of
view. That Strategy Is The Omega Strategy Itself.

The Omega Strategy Exhibits Liberality Relative To
conditional Reality and Control Relative To The
Unconditional or Divine Reality.

Thus, The Omega Preference Is For Control, limitation,
Doubt, and Even

Suppression or Exclusion Of attention, Mystical Devotion,
and Contemplative Submission To The Transcendental,
Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Condition, Being, or
Person, While Otherwise Liberally Maximizing attention
Relative To functional and relational activities and Even
The Total conditional Context or world-Context Of bodily
Based human Existence.

This Preference Leads From vulnerable, weak, and ignorant
Victimization By Cosmic Nature To Greater and Greater
experiential and abstract knowledge and, Finally, To
collective and individual Control Over Cosmic Nature. This
Omega Strategy Can Be Said To Be The Epitome or Archetype Of
What Is Commonly Conceived To Be The Necessary Path Of human
Fulfillment. Indeed, It Is Sometimes Conceived To Be The
Path Of Fulfillment Of The Divine Purpose In The Cosmos.

These Two Strategic points of view Are Apparently In
Conflict With one another, and, Indeed, Historically This
Has Been The Case. That Conflict Is Itself One Of The
Principal conditional Signs Of human Struggle Within The
Context Of conditional Nature, Thus, Early human History
Developed On The Basis Of A Dichotomy or Split In The
Disposition Of Man, Based On The Two Natural functional
Divisions Of the human brain. And, On The Basis Of That
Split, Mankind Has Developed Along Two Entirely Different
Lines, Almost As If Mankind Were Composed Of Two Separate
Species. Therefore, This Dichotomy and These Two Great Lines
Of human Development Must Be “Considered” and
Understood.

When Both Sides Of The Traditional Dichotomy Become
Conscious Of One Another, A Profound Sense Of Inherent,
Irreducible, and Inevitable Conflict May Also Appear Between
Them. Then Mankind Seems To Be Confronted With A Choice
Between Two Destinies, One Oriental In Its Conception, and
The Other Occidental In Its Conception. Because Of The
Naturally gross Survival Politics Of ordinary human Culture,
It May Seem That Mankind Will Always Inevitably Choose The
Omega Path, but It May Also Seem That Mankind Must

Necessarily Choose The Alpha Path, or Else Be Destroyed
By Political and Cultural Conflicts.

I Was Born In A Terrible Moment Of Necessity, To Call
Mankind To The Great Moment Of New Understanding and A
Single Destiny. My Word, My Leelas, The “Bright”
Revelation-Sign Of My Bodily Form, The Work Of My Spiritual
Presence, and The Revelation Of My Very State Forever Call
Mankind To Transcend Both, The Alpha Strategy and The Omega
Strategy. Neither The One Nor The Other Should Be Chosen.
Whether Alpha Or Omega, it is the Same ego that Makes The
Path. The Same ego Turns Away From conditional Reality and
Turns Toward It. The Same ego Turns Toward God and Turns
Away From God. The Same ego believes one Must Turn Toward
God and Otherwise believes one Must Turn Away From God and
Do God’s Work By Maximizing conditional experience and
knowledge. It Is Simply That There Are Two Forms Of egoity,
The One Basically Oriental, and The Other Basically
Occidental.

My Word, My Leelas, The “Bright” Revelation-Sign Of My
Bodily Form, The Work Of My Spiritual Presence, and The
Revelation Of My Very State Forever Call Mankind To The Only
Way That Is Single, Whole, and Not Based On egoity. The Way
Of The Heart Is Not Developed From the Exclusive or Dominant
point of view Of Either The Frontal Line Or The Spinal Line,
or From The Exclusive or Dominant point of view Of Either
the left Or the right hemisphere of the brain. Rather, The
Way Of The Heart Involves The Whole Of Man, The Full Circle,
the Resonant nervous system, the Total brain, All Aligned
and Submitted, In Love, To Me, and This, Ultimately, To The
Degree Of Inherently Perfect Dissolution In The
Unconditional, Transcendental, and Inherently Spiritual
Divine Self-Condition.

The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Always Present
God-Realization Through self-Transcending God-Communion. In
The Way Of The Heart, attention To The Unconditional Reality
Is Not Merely Maximized. Rather, It Is Made Constant, or The
Very Basis Of conditional Existence. Therefore, If
God-Communion Is To Be Constant, The Alpha Strategy Of
Introversion Is Not Workable. Instead, all attention To
conditional Reality Must Be Directly Converted Into
attention To The Unconditional Reality. Just So, In The Way
Of The Heart, The Omega Strategy Of Extroversion Is Equally
Unworkable, Since Any and All Involvement With conditional
Reality Must Be self-Transcending and God-Realizing, Even
Though Involvement With conditional Reality Is, In
Principle, To Be Fully Embraced.

In The Way Of The Heart, The egoic Strategy Of
Introversion and The egoic Strategy Of Extroversion Are Both
Freely Relinquished In The Dynamic Process Of Thorough
self-Observation, Most Fundamental selfUnderstanding, and
ego-Transcending Conversion Of the conditional self To
Communion With Me, and This, Ultimately, To The Degree Of
Inherent, and Inherently Perfect, Realization Of The
Unconditional Reality.

From the conventional and Necessarily egoic points of
view Of The Alpha Strategy and The Omega Strategy, Either
The Unconditional Reality Or The conditional Reality Is
Proposed As The Only Ultimately Justifiable Domain Of human
attention and activity. I Say The Two Cannot Be Separated
Without Deluding Mankind and Reinforcing the egoity Of
Mankind. The Way Of The Heart Presumes Both The
Unconditional and The conditional Dimensions Of Reality. The
Two Are Presumed In Dynamic Association With One Another,
and The Unconditional Reality Is, Clearly, The Senior
Dimension, or Source-Condition, Of This Dynamic Pair.

In The Way Of The Heart, The conditional Reality Is
Proposed and Rightly Embraced, but The conditional Reality
Is Always Submitted and Presently Transcended In God
Communion. The conditional and The Unconditional Are Not To
Be Conceived Apart From One Another. Love, Always Magnified
and Brought To Consciousness and action, Is What Unites The
Two In Dynamic Association. If, By Grace, God Is Realized As
Love-Bliss, In Person, In The Context Of the conditional
worlds, Then the body-mind and The Way Become Single,
Expressed Through self-Transcending Love Communion With The
Revealed Divine, and Yet Not Disinclined Toward The
Sacrificial Process or School Of conditionally Manifested
Existence Itself.

The conditional personality Must Be Converted and
Transcended In all of its forms and expressions. True
God-Communion Is egoless. Therefore, If God-Communion Is To
Be Real, True, Constant, and egoless, The Way Cannot Be A
Matter Of Strategic Minimization Of conditional action,
experience, and knowledge. The Way Of The Heart Must Be The
Process Of Directly Converting and Transcending Every
Species Of egoity, and Thus all actions, every experience,
and all forms of knowledge.

The conventionally Archetypal or Alpha Concept and
Strategy Of Religion Generally Prefers Not To act, but If
action Is Permitted or Even Required, The Prescription Is To
act but Not To react. It Is Common knowledge that every
action Necessarily Results In an equal and opposite
reaction. Therefore, Clearly, If one acts, one Will
Inevitably react. Because Of This, those who Try To act and
Not react Are Always Trying To Control their reactions.

The Way Of The Heart Is Not Based On The Alpha Strategy.
Neither Is The Way Of The Heart Based On The Omega Strategy.
Nor Is The Way Of The Heart Characterized By Any Conflict
Between The Alpha and Omega Principles. I Do Not Call My
Listening Devotee, My Hearing Devotee, or My Seeing Devotee
To The Strategy Of “act and Not react”. I Call My Listening
Devotee To self-Understanding. I Call My Hearing Devotee To
Transcend the self-Contraction Through Persistence In Most
Fundamental selfUnderstanding. And I Call My Seeing Devotee
To Transcend Even every form of the self-Contraction By
Engaging every action As Spiritual Love-Communion With Me,
and Not For The Sake Of self-Fulfillment or self-Negation,
but Only For The Sake Of That Love-Communion Itself.

The conventionally Archetypal or Alpha Concept and
Strategy Of Religion Generally Prefers To Minimize the
amount of time Spent In conditional action and To Maximize
the amount of time Spent In Inward Contemplation. Even the
ego Can Do This, and Still There May Be Not Even a moment Of
True God-Communion! I Call My Every Devotee Always To
Transcend the self-Contraction and Always, On The Basis Of
That Transcendence, To Be In God-Communion. Therefore, I
Call My Every Devotee To Perform, Convert, Positively
Change, and Transcend conditional actions of every kind,
Whether In Formal Meditation Or In the everyday
circumstance. For This Reason, My Every Devotee Must Surely
and Artfully Embrace Every Discipline Of the body-mind That
Turns and Opens the body-mind To Me. Even So, Discipline
Must Not Be Embraced For Its Own Sake, In A Loveless Manner,
but Always In My Good Company, and In The Divine Mood Of
Love, Humor, Freedom, and Ultimate Delight.

The conventionally Archetypal or Alpha Concept and
Strategy Of Religion Generally Emphasizes Sila, The Control
Of Outgoing Exuberance, or The Minimization Of The
Expression Of The Heart In Relation To conditional Reality.
True Sila Is Good Discipline, If Applied By one who Would
Understand the conditional self. True Sila Is Not The
Product Of A Problematic or Negative Summary View Of
conditional Existence. True Sila Is A Servant Of Consistent
self Observation and, Ultimately, It Is An Expression Of
Real and Most Fundamental self-Understanding. Ultimately,
True Sila Reflects Real experience and True knowledge Of The
Structural Laws Of the functional, practical, and relational
processes of the body-mind. And Such True Sila Expresses A
Reality-Sense Of the limits Of conditional Existence.

True Sila Is Necessary and Good For those who Would
Realize God, but False Sila Is Itself The Avoidance Of
God.

The Obvious limits Of conditional Existence Provide All
The Reasons For Either False Sila Or self-Indulgence. In
Either Case, The Problem and The Search Become The Logic Of
Existence. And The Problem With Seeking Is That It Always
Serves and Reinforces Its Own Original Principle, Which is
the self-Contraction.

The God-Realizing Process Is Necessarily
self-Transcending. Therefore, It Is Not A Process In Which
The Guiding Principle Is Either False Sila Or
self-Indulgence. Neither Alpha Nor Omega Is Itself The True,
Primary, or Central and Guiding Principle. The True,
Primary, or Central and Guiding Principle Is Not In The
Strategy Of Dissociative Detachment or Separation From
conditional Reality, Nor Is It In The Strategy Of Mere
Indulgence In conditional Reality. Rather, In The Fullness
Of The Way Of The Heart, The True and Inherently
self-Transcending Principle Is In The Free and
self-Surrendered Acceptance Of conditional Reality Via The
Discipline Of Love.

Ultimately, True Sila Is The Discipline Of Love Itself,
or Even Happiness Itself. The Heart Of True Sila Is True
Heart-Fullness, or The Spiritual Heart-Infusion Of
conditional Existence Through selfTranscending Divine
Communion. Therefore, Not False Sila and Not
self-Indulgence, but self-Transcending Love-Communion With
Me Under the circumstances Of conditional Existence, Is The
Necessary Ordeal. And My Devotee Must Learn and Practice
This self-Discipline and self-Transcending Ordeal Of Love,
Progressively, Until he or she Is Love, and Until Love
Itself, or The Inherent Love-Bliss-Fullness Of Self-Existing
Divine Being, Stands Motivelessly Indifferent, Self-Radiant,
and Free, Even Freely Outshining conditional Existence
Itself.

The conventionally Archetypal or Alpha Concept and
Strategy Of Religion Generally Idealizes Peace Of mind, but
mere “Peace” Of mind Has No Charm or Light. Greater Than
that Peace-mind Is The mind-In-God, Wherein the mind Is
Yielded, Divinely Infused, and Directly Transcended. Greater
Than Peace-mind Is mind Yielded In Ecstasy To The Degree Of
Divine Exaltation and Divine Intoxication, Transparent To
The Divine Fullness Of Love-Bliss, Radiant With Joy.

In Contrast To The Alpha Concept Of Religion, The Omega
Concept Of Religion Is Concerned With bodily-Based Morality,
Not Mysticism or Inward Contemplation. It Is “humanistic”,
Not Mystical, Not Contemplative, Not Inclined To Go Beyond
conditional self and conditional world, but Determined To
Achieve A Great Fulfillment in this world.

Nonetheless, The Omega Concept Of Religion Is “Religious”
In The Sense That God Is Conceived To Be At The Beginning Of
The conditional Cosmos and Working Toward The End Of The
conditional Cosmos. This Idea About God Is Rooted In An Idea
About Man. It Is The Omega Idea. It Is The bodily-Based Idea
That God, or Man, Is Causatively Oriented Toward conditional
Existence. Thus, Man Is, In The Omega View, To Participate
In, Struggle With, and Always Persist In The Discipline and
The Expectation Of Fulfillment In The Context Of The
conditional Reality.

Therefore, The Omega Concept Of human life Is Associated
With humanistic Morality, or The Struggle For human Survival
and Ultimate human Victory In The conditional Cosmos.

Even So, The Moral Propositions Developed In Omega-Based
Societies Are Not Consistently or Even Primarily Associated
With The Omega Strategy. Indeed, The Alpha Strategy Is The
Typical Basis For The Moral Injunctions Associated With
everyday life In Both Alpha-Based and Omega-Based Societies.
The Omega Strategy Is Based On The Motive To Subdue,
Control, and Exploit All Aspects Of conditional Reality. The
Alpha Strategy Is Based On The Motive To Minimize, Avoid,
and Escape All Aspects and Dimensions Of conditional
Reality. Therefore, The Omega Strategy Can Possibly Be The
Basis For The Practice Of Active Morality, but The Alpha
Strategy Is The Typical Basis For The everyday Practice Of
Passive Morality.

The Omega Preference For The Moral Path Is Founded On A
Basic Tendency To Identify With conditional human Existence
and A Subsequent Commitment To The Success Of The
conditional human Enterprise. The Alpha Preference Is For
The Mystical Path Rather Than The Moral Path, and That
Preference Is Founded On A Basic Tendency To Identify With
Transcendental Divine Existence and A Subsequent Commitment
To Succeed At The Enterprise Of Minimizing, Avoiding, and
Escaping conditional human Existence. Thus, The Alpha
Preference Is To “Rise Above” conditional Nature, Whereas
The Omega Preference Is To “Conquer” conditional Nature.

There is a worldly, atheistic, and Otherwise
Non-Religious humanism that Seeks To Establish Moral
Propositions On The Basis Of collective idealism and
individual idealism, but The Omega Effort Is, In Its Largest
Tradition, Associated With Religious Concepts. In That
Tradition, God Is Said To Be The Creator-Head Of The
conditional Cosmos. Thus, The conditional Cosmos Is Said To
Be The Goal and The Orderly Effect Of God. Man, Likewise,
Both collectively And individually, Is Said To Be The Goal
and The Orderly Effect Of God. From this Omega point of
view, The Moral Imperative For Man Is To Conform To The
Order Of God and Make The Orderly and Ultimate Fulfillment
Of Man The Goal Of human life.

Necessary To This Omega Concept Of Religious Morality Is
The Concept Of God As Creator-Cause and The Concept Of
conditional Nature As A Religious, Material, and Moral
Order.

The Omega Tradition Is Full Of Absolute Religious
Propositions. And Those Absolute Religious Propositions Are
The Basis For Orderly Systems Of Law and Orderly Systems Of
Moral Imperatives.

As I Have Said, The Alpha Strategy and The Omega Strategy
Are Both ego-Based Efforts or Tendencies. Each Is The Basis
For religious, intellectual, and social conventions that
Provide A Degree Of Order and Purpose In various times and
places. Even So, Those Systems Of Order and Purpose Are Not
Identical To Truth. They Are Schemes Conceived By Man In The
Search For Truth. And Each Such System Is limited by egoity,
or emotional self-Contraction, False intellectual Views, and
physical limitations.

This world Of Earth Is Not Merely a physical world Made
By God. This world Of Earth, Like all conditional worlds, Is
a psycho-physical world that Inheres In God. God Is Not The
Necessary, Direct, or Purposive Cause Of all conditional
events. God Is The Ultimate, and Inherently Perfect, and
Perfectly Subjective Source-Condition, The One In Whom all
events arise, change, and disappear. Even every effect and
every conditional being is functioning as a Creative cause
in this world. Therefore, every effect and every conditional
being and every Creative cause Plays Upon God, but Only
those effects, conditional beings, and Creative causes that
Are Utterly Submitted and Aligned To God Can Be Made To
Function As Transparent Means For The Revelation Of God
Within The Cosmic Domain.

God Simply Stands, Eternally Free. The Relationship
Between The Unconditional Reality and The conditional
Reality Is, Inherently, A Mystery. That inherent Mystery Is
Made Evident In Every Detail Of conditional Existence, but
The Secret Of That Mystery Is Perfectly Obvious Only When
Consciousness Participates In The Great Sacrifice Of Every
Detail Of conditional Existence. Apart From The Process Of
Such self-Sacrifice, It Is Not Possible To Truly Identify
The Signs Of God. And, Until There Is inherent
God-Realization, a conditional being, effect, or cause Is
Only Potentially Divine. And Even whatever condition or
conditional being or conditional state of being Is Divinely
Transfigured and Divinely Transformed By The Self-Existing
Divine Self-Radiance Is Also Utterly Outshined In Divine
Translation.

All conditional effects and beings and causes are acting
and reacting In A Great Asymmetrical Plastic That
Mysteriously Commands Both Order and Disorder, So That No
Ultimate Order, Goal, or Final conditional Fulfillment Is
Ever Attained. The conditional worlds and beings Are Not An
End In themselves. They Only Seem To Be An End To
themselves. In Fact, all conditional beings Are Inherently
and Constantly Called To Grow Beyond and To Go Beyond,
Through self-Understanding and Through self Transcending and
world-Transcending Love Of The Living God.

The conditional Cosmos Is Not A “Moral Universe” In the
conventional sense. There Is No Absolute and Sufficient
System Of social Imperatives or Laws Of public and private
Morality. Right and self-Transcending action Is Necessary,
but it Must Be Generated Intelligently and, Ultimately, On
The Basis Of The Sacrificial or self-Transcending Motive Of
Love-Communion With The Divine Person.

Neither The Alpha Morality Of Strategically Pursued
Escape Nor The Omega Morality Of Creative Change Is A
Principle Founded On Truth. Alpha and Omega Are Simply The
conventional Basis For social Morality, public Order,
popular Culture, and egoic Struggle. The Great Principle Is
self-Transcending Love-Communion With The Self-Radiant and
Self Existing Divine, Expressed Through The Ordeal Of The
Advanced Stages Of human Life. Therefore, True or Right
Morality Is, In Truth, The Morality Of Universal Sacrifice,
or self-Transcending Love Of God.

The conditional psycho-physical worlds Are A Great
Process Of Sacrifice. No conditional thing or being or world
Is An End In itself. Even So, This Sacrifice Is A Feast Of
Love-Bliss, Even A Swoon Of Joy, If The Principle Of
self-Transcending God-Communion Is Realized.

The Ultimate Morality Of Universal Sacrifice Is Founded
On The Understanding That Sacrifice Of the conditional self
In Divine Communion Is The Expression Of Truth, Whereas The
Motives Of Escape and Dominance Are, At Best, Only A Search
For Truth.

There Is No Absolute System Of Moral Imperatives In This
Domain Of Universal Sacrifice. There Is No Absolute Order Of
Laws In conditional Nature.

All Of This Is Aligned Toward Sacrifice, Going Beyond, or
Transcendence, and Thus Toward Realization Of The Divine
Self-Domain.

The Practice Of The Ultimate Way Of self-Sacrifice Is
individual, Always Present, Generally Producing Harmony,
Even Sometimes Disorderly, and Inherently Free. The
conventional Moralities Are Each Sometimes Engaged, In A
Dynamic Play Of Application, but one who Practices
selfTranscending Love Of God In The Context Of conditional
relations and events Always Exceeds the limits Of Alpha and
Omega.

Actions In The Mode Of Alpha Allow Detachment, Calm, Even
Purity, Orderliness, and Desireless Effectiveness, but Alpha
Has No Moral Rule or Effective Means In Situations Of social
Chaos and human Disorder That Require “Creative” and Even
Aggressive action. Just So, actions In The Mode Of Omega Can
Achieve Many individual and collective Goals, but, On Its
Own, The Omega Strategy Eventually Leads To The
Exploitation, Degradation, and Suppression Of the individual
and Mankind, Because The Omega Strategy Is Not Based On A
Regard For The Total Necessity and Obligation Of the
individual human being. Therefore, Beyond Virtue, Duty, and
The “Creative” or Aggressive Pursuit Of Goals Of conditional
Change, There Must Be The Constant Way and Practice Of self
Transcending God-Communion In The Context Of conditional
Reality.

The conditional worlds Are Built Upon The Sacrifice Of
every thing, event, process, or being that appears. The
conditional worlds Are Built Upon Sacrifice, Not Upon The
Preservation, Survival, Conquest, or Attainment Of
conditional Reality. Therefore, Senior To conventional
Morality Is The Ultimate Practice Of Sacrifice In God, Under
all conditions, and In all relations. That Ultimate Art
Involves A Willingness To Engage action Always In Love, but
Variously, In A Dynamic Fashion, Sometimes In The
Alpha-Likeness, Sometimes In The Omega-Likeness, Without
Requiring One or The Other or Both Of These Two To Account
For The Totality Of human Circumstance. Therefore, In This
Ultimate Art, There Is Sometimes Virtue, Sometimes Duty,
Sometimes Passivity, Detachment, or Receptivity, Sometimes
“Creativity”, Passion, or Aggressiveness, but There Is
Always This self-Sacrifice, or Persistence In Love-Communion
With The Divine Person, So That Love-Bliss-Radiance Replaces
The Act Of self-Contraction.

Conditional human Existence Is Not Merely a thing To Be
Preserved, but A Process To Be Fully Understood and
Fulfilled. The conditional Cosmos As A Whole Is Not A Fixed
System Of Order, but An Open-Ended Theatre Of Sacrifice In
God. Life Is Made Of A Little Temporary Order, A Constant
Tendency Toward Change, and An Ultimate and Absolute Demand
For Sacrifice. Therefore, All Of This Is A Dynamic Play Of
Order, Change, and Sacrifice, For The Sake Of Growth and
self-Transcendence, and Not For The Sake Of conditional
Existence In and Of Itself.

The Unconditional Reality Is Modified As The conditional
Reality. This Must Be Realized. Until This Truth Is
Realized, all conditional experience Is A School With A
Single Lesson. This Is The Lesson -The Lesson Of Life -: “I”
Cannot Become Happy. “I” Can Only Be Happy.’

The self-Contracted being Seeks Happiness conditionally,
By Pursuing and Depending On conditions, objects, and
others. This Is An Error, and The Fault Is Profound.

Happiness Is Not A Characteristic Of conditional Reality
Itself, but Happiness Is An Inherent Characteristic Of The
Unconditional or Divine Reality. And The conditional Reality
Is Always A Modification Of The Unconditional Reality.
Therefore, The Realization Of Happiness Is Possible In any
moment, If conditional Existence Is Released Into Full
Participation In Its Prior Condition.

Happiness Is Inherent, and It Must Be Inherently
Realized. The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Inherent
Happiness. The True Demonstration Of The Way Of The Heart
Is, In the conditional worlds, Associated With all kinds of
conditions, objects, and others, but Search and Dependency
Relative To conditions, objects, and others Is, By Grace, To
Be Constantly Transcended, Via Responsively self
Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Divine
Communion Under all conditions and In all relations.

I Do Not Call My Listening Devotee, My Hearing Devotee,
or My Seeing Devotee To Become Happy By Strategically
Separating body, emotion, or attention From conditions,
objects, and others. I Do Not Say: Be Unmoved Under all
conditions and In all relations. I Call My Listening Devotee
To Observe and Understand the conditional self Under all
conditions and in all relations. And I Call My Listening
Devotee To Transcend self-Contraction Under all conditions
and In all relations. Therefore, I Call My self-Transcending
Devotee To Be Happy Under all conditions and In all
relations. And Happiness Inherently Transcends all
conditions and all conditional relations.

Inherent Happiness Is Not Realized By Dissociation.
Inherent Happiness Is Realized By Transcendence Of the
self-Contraction In Unqualified Relatedness, Which Is
selfless or Unconditional Love Of God, or Participatory
Submission Of the Total conditional personality In and To
The Divine Person and Self-Condition.

Inherent Happiness Is Realized Prior To but Not
Strategically Exclusive Of conditions, conditional objects,
and conditional relations. Inherent Happiness Is Realized In
The Context Of Present Relationship, When the
self-Contraction Is Utterly Relinquished. And, In The Way Of
The Heart, That Relinquishment Is Not A Matter Of Strategic
ego-Effort, but It Is A Matter Of Heart-Responsive
Participation In My “Brightly” Attractive Bodily Company,
and My Spiritual Presence, and My Very State. Therefore, If
The Way Of The Heart Is Rightly and Truly Practiced,
conditional Existence Itself, Including object-Dependency,
other-Dependency, and Even The Perception Of conditional
Relatedness, Will Be Transcended and Outshined In The
Inherent or Self-Radiant Love-Bliss Of Self-Existing Divine
Being.

Life, In Its Ultimate Fullness, Is The Ordeal Of
God-Love, Even The Ordeal Of The Heart Under Extreme
conditions. The Price Of Happiness In every moment Is
Release Of self-Contraction. This Release Is Possible Only
If There Is Most Fundamental self-Understanding. And That
Most Fundamental self Understanding May Be Fulfilled,
Ultimately and Perfectly, Only By Distracted Love Of The By
Grace Revealed Person Of Reality, Truth, and Happiness. And
That Love Is Senior To All Concerns Relative To Virtue,
Duty, and conventional or humanistic social Morality.

In Addition To An Overriding Concern Relative To The
Morality Of conditional relations, The Omega Concept Of
Religion Is Inherently Disposed Toward Theistic Language and
Toward Linear Cosmological Descriptions. This Is Because All
Omega Concepts Develop From The Base Of Natural
Identification With the conditional human self in the
conditional world Of Earth. Thus, When That Which Is
Ultimate, Inherently Spiritual, Unconditionally Real, and
Necessarily Divine Is Regarded From The Omega Position, It
Is Presumed Over Against the conditional self and The
conditional Cosmos, and it is conceptually Affirmed As The
First Principle, The Origin and The Constantly Creative
Cause Of the conditional world and the conditional self.

The Alpha Concept Of Religion May, Particularly At the
popular level, Be Associated With Theistic Language and
Cyclical Cosmological Descriptions. Even So, The Alpha
Concept Of Religion Is Ultimately Oriented Toward The
Unconditional Reality In and Of Itself, Prior To The
conditional or Cosmic Domain, and, Thus, The Ultimate
Language Of Alpha Religion Is Inherently Non-Theistic and
Non-Cosmological, or Strictly Transcendental. This Is
Because All Alpha Concepts Develop From The Base Of Inherent
or Necessary Identification With The Unconditional
Reality.

The Great Reality or Condition That Is “Considered” From
The Alpha Position Is The Same Great Reality or Condition
That Is “Considered” From The Omega Position, and “Now” Is
Always The Time For The Controversy Relative To This Matter
To Cease. It Is Simply That The Great Reality or Condition
Is “Considered” From A Different Conceptual Position In Each
Of The Two Cases.

The mind Dominated By The Omega Principle Talks Religion
In Theistic and Cosmological Terms. And the mind Dominated
By The Alpha Principle Ultimately Talks Religion In
Non-Theistic, Non-Cosmological, and Strictly Transcendental
Terms. Omega Language Talks Of The Great Reality and
Condition As God, or The Divine, Relative To the conditional
world and the conditional self and The Morality Of relations
between conditional selves. Alpha Language Talks Of The
Great Reality and Condition Either As Transcendental Self Or
As Transcendental Condition Beyond Description. However,
Both Languages Talk Of The Same One, Each From a Unique and
Characteristic point of view, limited by the time, and by
the place, and By The Stage Of Life Of any individual who
Contemplates These Matters.

The Alpha Strategy Is Motivated Primarily By The Desire
To Avoid conditional or psycho-physical pain and suffering.
Since psycho-physical pain and suffering arise Inevitably,
In Natural Opposition To psycho-physical pleasure, The Alpha
Strategist Must Avoid Both pain And pleasure. Therefore, The
Alpha Strategist Is Moved To Escape or Turn Away From The
Total Context Of Natural, Bi-Polar, and Cosmic
Existence.

The Omega Strategy Is Motivated Primarily By The Desire
To Achieve conditional or psycho-physical pleasure. Since
psycho-physical pleasure Is The Natural Polar Opposite Of
psycho-physical pain and suffering, psychophysical pain and
suffering Must Inevitably be experienced and known If
psycho-physical pleasure Is Even To Be Sought. Therefore,
The Omega Strategist Must Admit or Agree To psychophysical
pain and suffering. And The Omega Strategist Must Constantly
Overcome The Tendency To Presume Defeat In The Face Of
psycho-physical pain and suffering, or The Mortal Tendency
To Lose Hope. Therefore, The Omega Strategist Is Moved To
Embrace and Even To Perfect The Total Context Of Natural,
Bi-Polar, and Cosmic Existence.

The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Inherent Transcendence
Of psychophysical pain and suffering. The Way Of The Heart
Is The Way Of Inherent Transcendence Of conditional
problems, internal contradictions, and All problem-Based
Searches. The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Spiritual,
Transcendental, and Divine Yoga, The Way Of The
Wisdom-Relationship To conditional or psycho-physical pain
and suffering and pleasure, or The Way Of self-Observation,
self-Understanding, and selfTranscendence In Relation To
conditional Existence. The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of
Inherent Happiness, In The Face Of psycho-physical pain and
suffering and pleasure. The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of
The Inherent Realization Of What Is Merely Sought In
psycho-physical or conditional pleasure. The Way Of The
Heart Is The Way Of Inherence In Self-Existing,
Self-Radiant, Native Love-Bliss.

The Alpha Strategist Is Motivated To Avoid or Escape The
Entire Cycle Of Desiring, Getting, Having, and Enjoying,
Because The Alpha Strategist Is Obsessed With The Desire To
Desire Not, To Avoid pain, and To Not suffer.

The Omega Strategist Is Bound To A Struggle With The
Inevitable Realities Of conditional or psycho-physical pain
and suffering, Because The Omega Strategist Is Obsessed With
Desiring, Getting, Having, and Enjoying.

The Alpha Strategist Is Constantly Struggling To Avoid or
Escape From suffering, pain, pleasure, money, food, sex,
fear, sorrow, anger, greed, lust, attachment, boredom,
doubt, discomfort, conditional experience, conditional
knowledge, and egoity.

The Omega Strategist Is Constantly Indulging In suffering
itself, and pain, pleasure, money, food, sex, fear, sorrow,
anger, greed, lust, attachment, boredom, doubt, discomfort,
conditional experience, conditional knowledge, and
egoity.

The Alpha Strategist Seeks To Avoid conditional or
psycho-physical pain or suffering To An Absolute Degree, but
This Is Not Possible Within The Context Of conditional
Existence, or In the experience of the body-mind.

Therefore, The Alpha Strategist suffers from the problem
Of The Desire Of Desiring Not To Desire. And The Chronic
Signs Of This Fault Are Too Much Dissociative Effort, Too
Much Seeking To Avoid or Escape, Too Much external or Merely
Apparent Renunciation, and Too Much Strategic Control and
Suppression Of body and mind.

The Omega Strategist Seeks To Achieve conditional or
psycho-physical pleasure, Even To An Absolute Degree,
Exclusive Of all pain and suffering, but This Absolute Is
Not Possible Within The Context Of conditional Existence, or
In the experience of the conditionally Manifested body-mind.
Therefore, The Omega Strategist suffers from the problem Of
The Desire For Desire. And The Chronic Signs Of This Fault
Are Too Much Effort Based On Desire, Too Much Seeking To
Achieve Fulfillment Of Desires, Too Little external or
Demonstratively and Concretely Evident Renunciation, and Too
Little Control Over the functions and relations of the
body-mind.

The Alpha Strategist Tends To Manifest self-Involved
Reserve, Dryness, Weakness, and A Lack Of Sympathy or Love
For others.

The Omega Strategist Tends To Manifest self-Involved
Enthusiasm For conditional or psycho-physical experience and
knowledge, Despair In The Face Of Negative and Frustrating
or painful events, and Chronic psycho-physical Dis-ease.

Such Are The Diseases Of Failed Understanding. The
self-Contraction Rolls Both Forward and Backward, but Always
On itself.

Now “Consider” Alpha and Omega. There Is A Lesson To Be
Learned By Observing The Two Great Occupational Diseases Of
Mankind.

If You Keep Too Many Cats, You Will Never See The Free
Bird Fly!
If You Keep Too Many Dogs, You Will Never Even Hear The Free
Bird Sing!
Therefore, I Call You To Hear and To See, and Thus To
Realize The Freedom Of The Heart.

I Reveal To You The Way That Transcends The Faults Of The
Alpha Strategy.

I Reveal To You The Way That Transcends The Faults Of The
Omega Strategy.

I Reveal To You The Way Of What Is Always Already The
Case, The Inherent or Native Feeling Of Being, Prior To, and
Inherently Transcending, and Yet Perfectly Coincident With
conditional causes and conditional effects, Whether At The
Beginning, At The End, Or In The Infinite Span Between.

I Call You To Understand the psycho-physical self.

I Call You To Understand The Alpha-Tendencies and The
OmegaTendencies Of Your Own body-mind.

I Help You To Learn The Way That Neither Strategically
Avoids Nor Strategically Exploits the body-mind, all others,
or any part or Even The Totality Of conditional
Existence.

You Must Learn The Yoga or Way Of The Divine Person, The
One Who Is Always Already Only Love-Bliss, or True and Free
Happiness.

You Must Learn True Sila.

You Must Learn Submission To Spiritual, Transcendental,
and Divine Love-Bliss.

You Must Learn The Submission That Transcends the
selfContraction, That Transcends Avoidance, Reaction, and
Bondage Relative To every kind of experiential pain and
suffering, and That Transcends Anxious Seeking and
self-Indulgence, As Well As Avoidance, and Suppression,
Relative To every kind of experiential pleasure.

My Devotee Must First Have Heard Me, or I Am Not Seen.
Therefore, My Every Devotee Must First Be My Listening
Devotee, who Grows To Hear Me Through The Ordeal Of
self-Observation, self-Understanding, and
self-Transcendence. Once I Am Heard, Then My Devotee Must
Progressively Go Beyond The Strategies Of Avoidance and
Indulgence Relative To every kind of experiential pain and
pleasure.

Instead Of Merely Avoiding arising conditions, objects,
thoughts, and impulses, and instead Of Merely Indulging In
arising conditions, objects, thoughts, and impulses, My
Hearing Devotee Simply Observes, Understands, and Directly
Transcends conditions, objects, thoughts, and impulses.

Eventually, My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee
Stands Simply As The Witness-Consciousness, Observing and
Then Realizing The Place and The One Wherein all conditions,
objects, thoughts, impulses, pains, sufferings, and
pleasures arise and pass away.

Therefore, My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee
Always Feels Me, and My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing
Devotee Always Feels The Divine Love-Bliss, The Divine
Freedom, and The Divine Person Wherein all conditions arise,
Persist or Change, and pass away.

My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Is A True and
Free Renunciate, Bound Neither By The Search To Return, Nor
By The Search To Hold On, Nor By The Search To Change or
Proceed.

My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Does Not Seek To
Avoid or To Escape conditionally Manifested Existence, Nor
Does My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Seek To
Indulge or To Perfect conditionally Manifested Existence.
Rather, My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Directly
Transcends conditionally Manifested Existence.

Therefore, My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee
Stands Free In Me.

My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Does Not Turn
Away or Flee From The conditional Reality.

My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Does Not Submit
To The conditional Reality.

My Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee Always Turns To
The Only One Who Is, The Divine Person, The Inherent Being,
Who I Am.

Therefore, Listen To Me. Hear Me. Become My Truly Both
Hearing and Seeing Devotee. And When You Realize The
Self-Existing Love-Bliss Of The Inherent Being, and When
Your Own Fullness Shines Faster and Further Than The
Beginning and The End Of Desires, You Will Be Inherently
Indifferent To conditional Existence, and You Will Be
Resolved in The Only and Your Own Divine Self-Light.

Un-Enlightened conditional beings Have themselves Been
The Traditional Makers and Transmitters Of Religion, Even
Though Each and All Of Those Traditional Religions Began
With A Response To A Prophet or A Teacher Awakened At The
Level Of One Of The Either Advanced Or Ultimate Stages Of
Life. Therefore, Controversies and Conflicts Have
Characterized Religious History, and Thus The Total History
Of Mankind. Even So, The Fullest and Complete Revelation Of
The Inherently Perfect Truth Itself Should Bring An End To
Controversy and Conflict.

I Am Born To Give That Fullest and Complete Revelation Of
The Inherently Perfect Truth. I Come To Restore Humor and
Love, and To Awaken Great Intelligence. I Come To Restore
Real Religion, Which Should Be The Foundation Of conditional
Existence. Therefore, By Addressing conditional beings
everywhere and Founding them in The Obvious Truth, I Have
Worked To Restore Wisdom To Every Aspect Of Life In The
Cosmic Domain.

I Was Born Into The Omega Culture Of The West, and I
Developed My Teaching Work By A Great Submission, In
Confrontation With the Aggressive egoity Of Western Man.
This Was A Necessary Service, Because Mankind everywhere Is
Basically Characterized By The Omega Orientation.

The Great Tradition Of Esoteric Religion Has Been Most
Often and Most Basically Addressed To Mankind In Its Alpha
Orientation, but I Was Born To Struggle With My Own
Omega-Born Human Nature, and With My Own Alpha-Born Inward
Nature (Otherwise Earned From Mankind), and With All The
Contents and Results Of Mankind, In Order To Discover How
The Omega Type Of Man, and The Alpha Type Of Man, and Even
every one Of Man May Enter The Inherently Perfect Heart Of
The Way Of self-Transcending God-Realization.

That Struggle Was Fulfilled. This Testament Is The
Summary Of My Discoveries. It Is Not A Word Of Instruction
In The Omega Form, Nor Even In The Alpha Form. Any one Can
Enter The Inherently Perfect Heart Of The Way Of
self-Transcending God-Realization By Means Of My Instruction
and Transmitted Help. Both The Omega Type Of Man and The
Alpha Type Of Man Can, If Moved To The Great Realization
That Inherently Transcends the conditional self, Discover
what Must Be Understood, Surrendered, and Converted, and How
All Of That Can Be Done.

This Testament Is The Summary Of My Religious
Revelation.

I Freely Talk Of The One God.

I Describe The Unconditional Reality and Only Real Self
As Person, Reality, and Truth.

I Am Thrilled To Speak Of That One, Who Is The Only
Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Being and Self.

I Communicate In Paradoxes, Often Using The Styles Of
Both Omega Language and Alpha Language In My
“Considering”Work Of Communication To every point of
view.

Even So, I Do Not Reduce The Way Of The Heart To
Languages and Talk, or To the mind of any point of view.

I Am The Way Of The Heart.

The Way Of The Heart Is Describable Innumerably.

The Way Of The Heart Is Beyond Description.

The Way Of The Heart Is The Inherently Perfect
Self-Condition Of My

Every Word.

Therefore, My Language Includes and Transcends Both The
Omega Language and The Alpha Language.

I Only Speak The One Truth, Even Without A Word, By Utter
Feeling Silence.

I Am Eleutherios, The Liberating Truth.

I Am The Inherent or Native Feeling Of Being.

My Language Is Ultimately Single, Whole, and Unique,
Beyond the limitations Of Alpha and Omega.

I Am Quiet.

I Am Restless.

I Am Full.

I Satisfy The Want and Call For Joy.

Therefore, Listen To Me and Hear Me and See Me.

Heartily Receive The Revelation Of The Unconditional
Reality In Person, and Gratefully Practice The Way Of The
Heart In every moment Of conditional Existence.
